Chimanimani – At least two people died while several others were seriously injured last night in a stampede for Grace Mugabe‘s freebies at Mutambara High school near here.

Sources who attended the  rally told The Zimbabwean on Friday that two school children died in a stampede while fleeing from armed soldiers and police officers who were repelling Zanu (PF) supporters who had besieged the school’s sports  grounds where  an assortment of Grace ‘s “donations “ were stacked waiting to be distributed.

“I have just arrived from Mutambara this morning. I can confirm that two toddlers were trampled to death  while fleeing armed soldiers who were controlling the crowd which wanted to receive free goods  donated by the first lady. As I speak, scores of people are still camped at Mutambara High school grounds waiting to receive their share “said a Zanu (PF) supporter who attended the rally.

Another source who attended the much publicized rally said she witnessed several elderly people who were injured in a stampede while trying to enter the barricaded school sports ground.

The source said scores of Zanu (PF) from all over the country spent the whole night camped at the school hoping to receive Grace‘s “donations.”

Apart from government farming equipment such as tractors, Grace also doled out cooking oil, bars of soap, handbags, blankets and shoes.

    Now people are dying in stampedes trying to get freebies from Grace. What people need is for the economy to work then they can buy all these things for themselves and they wouldn’t need freebies.
    But poverty is one of Mugabe’s weapons, he knows that as long as people are poor he will be king. So Mugabe really wants people to be very very poor.

    The Mugabe name is forever associated with death. If not by his hands, then by the actions of his stupid wife. They steal those shues from poor traders at the country’s boarders and use them to buy the support of those they caused to be poor in the first place. My heart bleeds for the poor toddlers.

    So now disgrace has been and gone and the people of Chimanimani are left to moan their children? Nothing can be more self- serving.
